to the rescue. he has a bill to reverse all of president obama's executive actions. talking points memo obtained senator paul's proposal. there is no mention of a single order in violation of the constitution. not one. maybe these righties just don't know enough about the constitution. perhaps there is someone who could help them out. let's try former bush attorney general michael mukasey. >> it seems to be by definition an abuse of power, a power grab, if you will. no? >> it is -- politically it is a power grab, yes. >> politically is it then unconstitutional in some instances? >> i don't think it's unconstitutional in the sense that i don't think it's something you that could get a court to find unconstitutional. >> uh-oh. it's not the answer hannity was looking for. maybe he should try asking it in a different way. >> so did you think that obama care was unconstitutional? >> did i? >> did you agree with the majority opinion? >> the supreme court said it was unconstitutional. >> you did? >> so you agree with john roberts? >> yes. >> you did. i'm surprised. because in that case -- so through th
and i were talking about you think nixon would have some good advice for obama about how to properly do a second term? surely you can't be serious. >> there are such things as negative role models in life and nixon is not a bad one. something we forget about is nixon by this huge majority, one of the biggest in presidential history. yet, no support, you know, two houses of congress, controlled by the democrats so he overreached. he did something called impoundment. he said, democrats can vote all the programs they want. i'm not going to spend the money. even if it's not for watergate, nixon might have been impeached for this. it shows what presidents do when they feel too weak. president obama we heard a couple of weeks ago said i have read the literature on presidents in second terms who overreach and got the message. >> michael, how have second inaugurations historically differed from first inaugurations? >> well, usually it's sort of a somewhat pale echo of the first. you have a first inaugural speech, a big deal, president suggesting the soaring ideas. second one is more limited, mo
. you know, in policies, kind of according to what president obama wanted to do yesterday. >> let's talk about that. the president unveiled plans to curb gun violence yesterday. i want to listen to part of what he said. >> okay. >> congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. the type of assault rifle used in aurora, for example, when pared with a high-capacity magazine has one purpose. to pump out as many bullets as quickly as possible. >> it looks unlikely that the president will get ab assault ban by the senate. how do you feel about that? >> you know, just the fact that he is hearing our plea not only from aurora, but from newtown, from tucson, from all of these different places, you know, our pleas are being heard, and that is that we hope that, you know, other -- there are other people out there every day, getting killed, and we're trying to c b curb -- get some kind of policy in place so 34 people aren't affected every day due to gun violence. >> almost two weeks ago, you mentioned what would help you heal if cinemark would
and president barack obama's campaigns and tony, from talk radio news service, tony? >> wow, i actually also make tv ads for a living, megyn and obviously, sometimes you do take creative license, but in that particular ad two things bothered me he the most the images of sandy hook, we know what we felt, every american with a heartbeat. and anti-gun groups really are now trying to guilt people into a position, and how much do you restrict and limit the second amendment. and number two the words they omitted and music added to the background. he said my grandfather had a gun to stop a lynching and my father had this rifle to protect our family. and creates an impression he's he a cowboy who misuses or abuses rather, his second amendment right and it's irresponsible and troubling this is the tempo for the debate. if you rightfully own a gun and believe in the second amendment you somehow are complicit or nefarious person and complicit with the sandy hook massacre. >> megyn: mark? >> nobody cares why john barrow's grandfather had the smith & wesson. nobody is trying to take it. and we're looking
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
